From Dartmouth Alum to Faculty of Color

This one-day symposium brings Dartmouth alumni who graduated within the last 50 years and who have pursued careers in academia. These alumni will share how their scholarship and experience are helping to diversify the academic profession. The panelists will discuss the challenges they faced as students of color at Dartmouth, where they found support on campus, and how the Liberal Arts curriculum has contributed to their professional achievements and successes. The alums will also describe their current contributions to diversity and inclusivity at their campuses, as well as what work needs to be done to make our academic institutions welcoming spaces for students and faculty from underrepresented groups. The symposium takes a retrospective look at the history of underrepresented minorities at Dartmouth and looks toward building a diverse and inclusive future for students and faculty of color in the academic profession.
